Tips for traveling to Africa


However, you have to be aware of where you are going. The desert is a beautiful, remote and dangerous place, and you need to be prepared to enter it safely. In this article we will go over the most essential things you need to know in order to travel safely through one of the world’s harshest territories: the desert.

First of all, something basic: you have to be humble, because nature is much harsher than we perceive. Going to the desert is to enter a habitat where many things can happen beyond our control and, therefore, it is better to keep overconfidence and be sensible in order to enjoy the experience to the fullest.

It is essential to have navigation equipment, either a GPS (highly recommended) with loaded maps of the territory we are going to, or very detailed maps of the region (military maps, for example) combined with accurate geopositioning instruments. In our case, we will opt for a good GPS with adequate cartography.

There are many things to consider when planning your trip to Africa.  Budget, time of year to travel, countries to visit and an endless list of other things. However, all this preparation is worth it: once you arrive at your destination you will see that each and every minute spent has been worth it.

Are you looking to travel thousands of kilometers driving a 4×4, to see a traditional African tribe first hand, to surf the Atlantic Ocean in search of the perfect wave, to see the “Big Five” on safari, to relax on a beach with a glass of wine in your hand, to relax on the beach with a glass of wine in your hand?

Africa offers a wide range of activities and it is impossible to do them all in one trip. It is therefore advisable to have an idea of what you want to visit in the continent and the experiences you want to experience during your days there.

Although in most cases a special visa is not necessary for less than 90 days, there are countries that have stricter regulations. From Rhino Africa we can inform you about the situation of each destination and tell you the best way to get the travel permit.

Although I am used to traveling without a set itinerary or following a group, when planning my trip through Africa I preferred to rely on a local company that would allow me to visit the best of each country during the short period of time I had (14 days in my case). Besides sharing some laughs during the trip, as well as meeting new people, is always welcome.

I hired the tour “Okavango & Chobe Trail – North 2017” from Nomad Tour, because the tour seemed very interesting and the service offered according to the base price I paid ZAR 9,950 (approx. 610€).

Traveling to Africa is always a discovery. The neighboring continent has the ability to transform us in the deepest part of our being. The way of seeing life, the immensity of the landscapes, the harmony with nature… we have much more to learn than we think.

On the trips to Africa that we have selected, a completely transforming experience awaits you. Not only will you see lions, elephants and leopards, but you will also learn about a more sustainable way of living in local communities.

From top accommodations such as the Arusha Cofee Lodge, it is possible not only to go on safaris in the Serengeti or the Ngorongoro Area but also to learn about coffee cultivation or visit tribes who maintain their nomadic way of life with pastoralism.

Tanzania also stands out for having a beautiful island, Zanzibar, which is a luxurious finishing touch to a safari with a private beach. A union of adventure and relaxation with first-class resorts in an Indian paradise.
